At first, this system is closed.

In tank one:

A 2 Liter tank containing H2 at a pressure of 1.5 atmospheres.

In tank two:

A 1 Liter tank containing N2 at a pressure of 3 atmospheres.

In tank three:

A 4 Liter tank containing CO2 at a pressure of 1 atmosphere. Also, a non-volatile liquid covers the bottom 1.67 Liters.

The system is then opened. What is theTOTAL PRESSUREin the opened system, and thePARTIAL PRESSUREof each gas?

I would think that the problem gives the partial pressures already, right?

So partial of H2 = 1.5 atm, N2 = 3 atm and CO2 = 1 atm

And just add all the pressures together to get 5.5 atm as the total pressure?

Is this right?

Have something to add?
